Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) did not seem to agree with President Trump’s call that Americans reject socialism as he remained stone-faced when Trump declared “[Americans] are born and we will stay free,” during the State of the Union on Tuesday.

“Here in the United States, we are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country,” Trump said.

Several people in attendance for the State of the Union openly booed this idea.

“America was founded on liberty and independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born and we will stay free,” Trump declared.

The camera quickly found Sanders who, himself is a self-described socialist, remained firmly seated while other people in attendance chanted “USA, USA.”
